Egyptian Ella Ella was a dancing girl who started getting fat Every day saw three more pounds on Ella Until one day she found she'd lost her job because of that And to make it worse, she'd lost her fella She took a trip to Egypt to forget And she made such a hit that she's there yet. cho: So if you hear of a gal who can quake and shake 'Till it makes you think of a nervous snake They're speakin' of Egyptian Ella She weighs two-twenty but that's O.K. They like 'em plenty down there that way She has the love of every fella And when she shakes and when she starts Down by the River Nile The boys all take their old sweet-hearts And throw them to the crocodiles And every sheik in the audience Jumps up and yells that "She's immense!" They're cheering for Egyptian Ella. All the other dancers from the desert to the Nile One by one admit that they are jealous for although they dance each night and wear the sweetest smile Ella's is the tent that draws the fellas For Ella has a dance that they can't steal 'Cause nothing else could do it but an eel So-o --(CHORUS) SW
